This is what I mean.  I use Asus GPU tweak as a temperature checking program.  It has a max temperature on it where the highest temperature it reaches shows up.  It doesn't stay at that temperature but its the highest temperature it reached.  Why does it do that?  It is a new video card about 2 weeks old.

To give any decent answer, you would need to list Maker / Model / Age / System (XP-Vista-Windows7or 8) ETC

As a very brief answer ,, it should not reflect a temperature above 80C and low 70's are better (again Make, Model, System, Usage) -

 

Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details - This may be easier.

Thank You .

From their site, it should not run much above the low 60'sC

 

Do you use CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID  or similar to check temps ??

I use Asus GPU Tweaks.  Which is their program.

Sorry, I was called out -

 

ASUS GPU Tweak (Windows 7 64bit)

Description GPUTweak 2.8.2.0 ZIP   Link to try the latest version of your tool, or uninstall yours and install this version.

 

You say >> It has a max temperature on it where the highest temperature it reaches shows up.  It doesn't stay at that temperature but its the highest temperature it reached. <<

Are you aware of the temperatures, or just a line / graph that shows you have reached a certain limit ??

 

CPU-Z from CPUID tend to show operating temperatures.......

I updated but no real change in max temperature.  depending on the game it can stay around 66/67 degrees.  Max temperature it shows on the graph is 130 (I feel like this is a melting temperature.)

130 celcius is a temperature to worry about - if it's real.

It never went that high, thats just the what it shows on the graph.  Highest it went to, that I can confirm is 80 or so.  It didn't stay there long but it did go up to it.

These are within the Maximum range for a short time.

Your maker says that the 60's (prefer lower 60's) is operating temperature, that is why I opted for you to install a quick readout program, as above.

I can officially say (or can pretty much say) that there is something wrong with the radeon r9 270 video card.  I am very surprised but I can play final fantasy XIV with my APU (a 6550d - integrated GPU along with a CPU).  CPU temperature is maxes at 68 GPU maxes around 62.  After that CPU goes back down to around 60 and GPU stays round 40-62.  Sometimes will go to 70 but will never stay around that temperature.  (base on what I looked up, safe temperature for my APU is 72.)

 

As for the programs I used for this.  OCCT and CPUID

The first card that was in your Speccy is the one I rated at mid 60's to low 70 C. I have not looked for any others yet .

Today I have been very busy, so I did not get a chance to look back (except for my early post) Posted Today, 07:05 AM - My local time

 

I checked your post and one other, then I was not here -

 

ASUS R9 270 Series << This is what was listed then.

Just FYI 70/80°C under load is adequate for GPU's under heavy load, you should ot worry, and the fact that the graph scale reaches 130°C has nothing to do with anything, it's like your car's speedo reaching 160 mph even though it can't go over 130.

@ Datcoolguy

 

Any temps quoted in my posts are checked with the maker first (and I may allow a bit extra depending on use) ..........

I'm sorry, but why do you come here to ask if it's okay and then just shut us up by saying you verified with the OEM?

 

I have been running my GTX 660 on 75°C under load (Tropical area) for about 5 years and i never had an issue, 70°C sounds like alot, but danger temps are above 80°C.

 

Hell, i had my laptop's fan go out and ended up using it all the way to 100°C until i managed to get a new one.
